In a Game-changing Partnership with Airbnb, CSC Introduces Frontline Stays for COVID-19 Responders

Free short-term accommodations for healthcare workers responding to the COVID-19 crisis

Cancer Support Community (CSC) and Airbnb are partnering to connect first responders with clean, convenient places to stay that allow them to be close to their patients — and safely distanced from their own families.

Eligibility and Application Process

  • First Responder or Hospital Administrator (on behalf of the first responder) submits an application to CSC. 
  • CSC’s Open Homes coordinators review the application. 
  • Once approved, CSC’s Open Homes team will assist in providing access to Airbnb’s free housing platform. 

General Terms

  • All medical professionals working in hospitals or medical centers managing COVID 19 patients are welcomed to our program. 
  • Health care workers may have a maximum stay of one month. 
  • All options are non-shared space only. 
  • Hosts have been provided with cleanliness guidelines and must wait 72 hours between bookings.
  • CSC is not liable for any guest’s health condition, individual’s safety, or personal belongings. 
  • CSC reserves the right to deviate from these terms on a case-by-case basis when special circumstances arise. 

Eligibility Requirements

  • Must be a health care worker responding to COVID-19 crisis. 
  • Requests for housing must be made or confirmed by the administrator of the hospital or medical center.
